"‘Empty Space’ by Victor van Gaasbeek is a series of digital art that reminds us how precious the Earth’s animals are by showing endangered species in their habitat. The twist lies in how these animals are cut out of their surroundings, leaving only white space behind. The connection made in ‘Empty Space’ by Victor van Gaasbeek is clear: If these endangered animals die out, none will take their place in a habitat."

Time is running out
Personal wallpaper design, focused on creating awareness for the rapid decline of polar bears due to melting polar ice. Polar bears are dying. As global warming accelerates, the sea ice they depend on for survival is literally melting away. Bears are starving and drowning as they have to swim farther and farther to reach solid ice. Some are even turning to cannibalism in a desperate search for food.
Global warming is an often discussed subject, these artworks are among the first artworks I created in 2009 and got attention from around the world, fueling this discussion. The posters can be found around the web, in magazines and even books.
